Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Transportation Planning Board recently approved federal funding for several projects in Fairfax County, mostly related to the Safe Routes to School program:
  • $146,000 - Town of Vienna: Louise Archer Elementary School Missing Sidewalks
  • $280,000 - Westbriar Elementary School Access - Old Courthouse Road Sidewalk
  • $150,000 - Cinderbed Road Bikeway
  • $280,000 – Town of Herndon: Van Buren Street Multi-modal Improvements Project
From the TPB:
The Transportation Planning Board recently approved a number of pedestrian and bicycle improvement projects in Northern Virginia to receive funding under the federal Transportation Alternatives Program.

The $2.5 million in funding will cover the capital costs of constructing the projects, which include sidewalk enhancements, new bike lanes and bikeways, and accessibility improvements for persons with disabilities.

The projects are spread across Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William counties. They were selected by the TPB based on how well they support or advance regional goals, including providing more transportation options, strengthening Activity Centers, improving access to transit, and serving disadvantaged populations.
